PLS-00306: wrong number or types of arguments in call to ‘GETDCBACKUPHISTORY’ RMAN-06004 ORA-06550

SYMPTOMS

Rman backup fails when connected through catalog. But when rman connects directly the jobs run OK.

RMAN-06004: ORACLE error from recovery catalog database: ORA-06550: line 1, column 211:
PLS-00306: wrong number or types of arguments in call to ‘GETDCBACKUPHISTORY’
ORA-06550: line 1, column 211:
PL/SQL: Statement ignored

CAUSE 1

A new variable, atAnyScn, is passed to dbms_rcvman.GETDCBACKUPHISTORY in new RMAN catalog versions.
If this variable is not part of the dbms_rcvman description then this error is returned.
 
DESCRIBE on dbms_rcvman on recovery catalog schema is not showing this variable atAnyScn

 

SOLUTION 1

Run DESCRIBE on dbms_rcvman on recovery catalog schema and see if it’s showing this variable : atAnyScn

a.  Connected to the catalog schema with sqlplus, execute:

SQL>  desc dbms_rcvman;

b.  Check for the existence of atAnyScn under PROCEDURE GETDCBACKUPHISTORY

c.  If it does not exist, this catalog schema needs to be upgraded.

CAUSE 2

forgot upgrade catalog after datapatch -verbose

 

SOLUTION 2

rman catalog username/password@rman

RMAN> UPGRADE CATALOG;

RMAN> UPGRADE CATALOG;
